Elastic Staples IndES
Eco-packaging module for various packaging units
The strong pliable staples stretch to a wide variety of product shapes and sizes. Unlike cable ties or twist ties, elastic staples are thin and enable a clean appearance of the product when secured to the packaging.
Our systems feature fastener lengths ranging from 15 millimetres through 200 millimetres, and tensile grades from standard to heavy duty. Staples are pliable and can stretch for a wide variety of product shapes and sizes. Applications include toys, hardware, DIY tools, sporting goods accessories, kitchen utensils, home textiles and socks.
While gains in production efficiency can be realized, the most important advantage of using the IndES® Elastic Staple® is at the point-of-sale. Consumers can easily read the product information and messages typically displayed on the back of a card. Here’s a comparison of packaging using conventional twist ties versus the same packaging using the IndES® Elastic Staple system.
Weighing in at less than 0.002 ounces, the Elastic Staple can reduce the total packaging weight up to 99% when compared with many conventional packaging methods. Products stay neat and secure while allowing consumers to see, feel and touch the products prior to purchasing. Secure, yet convenient removal allows customers to more fully enjoy their purchase.
Reduce plastic packaging by 99%
• reduce energy consumption up to 4 times (compared to blister packs)
• decrease downtime by reducing time and steps in packaging production
• reduce operator workload
• reduce material costs
Elevate consumer experience
• less packaging improves visuals of the product at the point-of-sale
• faster, easier and safer removal of the product from packaging
• consumers prefer to buy eco friendly packaged products
Elastic staples are stretchable and do not break if the product is thicker than the length of the staples. By using 10,000 IndES staples per roll in comparison to 100 fasteners per clip, the productivity is increased and labour costs may be reduced.
Sustainable and eco friendly
The small and lightweight IndES Elastic Staples™ eliminate excess packaging and reduce the amount of transported material. Compared to conventional packaging methods, IndES Elastic Staples reduce water and energy use, solid waste production and C02 emissions.
IndES staples can greatly improve packaging time. A comparison between using manual method with cable tie fastening systems and the automated pneumatic module shows a 4 times increase in productivity per hour.
Automation prevents injuries
With the manual method of tagging a lot of human effort is needed to penetrate trough thick layers. Long-term manual tagging can result in muscle inflammation or even surgeries that reduce productivity.
